The Mackinac Center for Public Policy announced recently that Wolverine Elementary earned an “A” as one of the top-performing public schools in the state. The Mackinac Center’s new Michigan Context and Performance (CAP) Report Card adjusts a school’s standardized test scores to account for student poverty levels. Using this process, Wolverine Elementary was ranked #168 out of 2,203 schools in Michigan. The good news didn’t stop with that…the MS/HS earned a “B” and was ranked #396.
The CAP report uses multiple years of student achievement data so that a single year’s results don’t dramatically affect the scores. A high CAP score means that a school performs well compared to its peers. A full, searchable database of CAP scores is available at www.mackinac.org/CAP2019
Congratulations to the students, parents and staff of Wolverine Community Schools on earning these high marks.
